Vote for Ped!

I'm very proud today.

My very good friend and long time partner/contributor Pedro Doria's blog has recently been nominated for the Deutche Welle's Best of the Blogs awards. This nomination has not come too early. Pedro's blog is incisive, well-informed and always extremely relevant. Unfortunately, his blog is not published in English as well, because his taps into the Brazilian political points of view offer unmatched comprehension of the world's perception of America.

For Brazilians, it offers a view from American politics that is tempered by the knowledge of someone that built his persona growing up in California while keeping his feet in Rio de Janeiro. Yes, he has the tendency to favor liberal views, but what else would you expect from a Carioca who lived in the Bay Area? Regardless of his view, however, Pedro makes sure to do what American journalism seems to have forgotten. He talks about the other side, showing the two sides of each story. That alone would make it worth reading. The unusual, half-forgotten but correct sources and the extremely well-developed prose are the other main reasons to vote for him.

So go ahead, cast your vote for Ped! Here's the link:

I am Bill! Kill me!

BILL! (Snake Charmer)

You're Bill! I love you! Anyways, you're skilled in the art of manipulation. You're very strong, talented, powerful, and witty. You don't seem to have any real sense of morality, and you only let your kindness show around a select handful of people (mostly Kiddo and B.B). You do have some regret for the horrible things you've done, but won't let it interefere with your life. You respect your opponents, and you generally believe in fair game.
